Forum: etree Subject: Folktunes pointer

This site is huge and I realize a lot of fans might go just to this LMA page and not notice others- or even just to one LMA band and not notice others, as per a recent thread.

So, here's a heads up to fans of folk music (I know there's some overlap here) to go visit and/or even give a hand with this collection:

wow, thanks for the pointer link diana! i'm amazed at all the little corners of archive.org that i've never even heard of let alone explored... i'll scope it out indeed, this sounds like a good place!

btw: i highly recommend everyone scope out other collections up on top there.. text, moving images, audio ... there is litterally TONS of stuff that i had no clue about just sitting there for free waiting to be enjoyed. yey archive.org!

One problem is the really new or small ones, like the folktunes collection, aren't in the top bar yet. A lot of "hidden" things reveal themselves when someone posts to their related forum, which is how I noticed. :)

Actually, Folktunes is filed in netlabels:

I know it's not very netlabel-ish, but it's such a small collection and we have so many other audio collections in the top bar that we decided to put it in there, heh.

Another good spot to find old folk music is in the Open Source Audio section.

and

If you've got time for only one song, it's hard to beat "Hallelujah! I'm A Bum"

This is a real cool idea.
I was wondering, has anybody tried contacting Arlo Guthrie? I think he'd be a really good addition to a folk section.

"I was wondering, has anybody tried contacting Arlo Guthrie? "

i also remember an LA times article about him and it mentioned he was taper friendly and supportive of spreading internet music of sorts... i think he would be into it!

I emailed Arlo a *long* time ago now and didn't hear back, but at the time we might've even had some admin email blackholing. He's on my list to retry sometime, or someone feel free to get to it sooner than me!
